RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

Yes, 12V is a resourceful, handy guy, probably got it from his Dad! He often has pictures to explain, or prove a point. Pics are great help, wish more people posted them! My 30# tanks weigh 66 lbs when fully filled. I have to duck a bit, as mine go in from the front, under the overhang. It helps to keep them close to your body, give it a bear hug, but keeping one hand underneath. Jerry

RE: Low Battery Voltage

If plugged in and showing 13.6, does not mean battery was fully charged. However if battery showed only 6.3, after just being unplugged overnight, with minimal draw, I'd say you need a new battery. Did a competent person load test your battery, and say it was fine? Unless your battery has been abused, often times allowed to drop to 50% or less, it should have lasted more than two years. A four hour trip should have charged the battery some, but if very low to begin with, not enough to operate the slide on it's own. I'd have it load tested again, as it should not drop to 6.3 overnight. I think you will be needing a new battery. Jerry

RE: Old tow rig about ready for duty again!

Like button! That has really turned out nice! Sure makes a dif, when time is taken on a restoration job. I think doing a project like that with a Son forms a special bond, and a great learning experience. Not many 16 yo kids could be trusted to care for a project vehicle, but I'm sure yours is well aware, how special it is. Congrats to both of you!! Jerry

RE: Is It Worth It?

^^Interesting...never used storage insurance for a motor vehicle. Question...if you needed to use the 15 DRW today, would you have liability coverage on it, since you do on the 01? Jerry All I do is call my Agent and tell him to put full coverage back on. I then call to have it removed once I am done with it. I get billed pro rated for days used. Storage is fire and theft etc. Thanks for the explanation! It helps to have a good agent, that appreciates your business. My agent has helped me at times, even when he had no obligation to do so.

RE: What should I do if my EPDM roof turns black

That looks great Russ!! If that continues to hold up for several years, it was sure worth the work! Those hands and knees jobs are the best to get quality results. Jerry

RE: Camping Safety

Probably a little more risk if you're staying in sketchy places, which have increased in numbers. There's more people, more touchy people, more angry people, most of whom are encouraged by the media to act out their issues. I agree with all things mentioned, and the way over done media attention, almost making celebrities, of people committing vicious acts against others. Jerry

RE: Problems with door after new steps installed

Not sure why you had new fold out steps installed on a new trailer? If the trailer came with removeable steps, and the dealer changed the type step, the structure may not be designed for the weight, when extended, causing the door framing to distort. Sometimes parking on uneven ground, can twist the frame enough to cause the door issue you describe. Need more details, but seems the steps themselves are not the problem. Jerry

RE: What Upgrades needed for a 3/4 ton pickup

Also, the 6.0/4.10 combo of that time was rated to tow a FW around 15K. Not saying it would be a comfortable tow, but if OP is towing mostly flat midwest roads, it may be acceptable. Jerry

RE: What Upgrades needed for a 3/4 ton pickup

Now that I've reread intial better.... If the gas rigs are pre 2014, assuming a 6.0 gas, I would not buy that rig, 2500, 3500 SW or dw! A 6.6 gas is a way better option power wise. If at elevations below 6-7k' best. It will go to the 10-12k feet elevation in Rockies, but your down 30% of HP at those levels. If a single life time trip, go fo for it, if ALL the time over next 3+ years, get one of the diesels from last 10-15 yrs. An ext cab may be ok payload wise, depending upon options 6.5 bed is 200 LS less than an 8' bed. The longer bed and wheelbase may be better than the loss of payload. Marty What’s the aversion to pre-2014? Same power and 6 speed back to at least 2010 as I recall. I know the body/chassis updated in 2015 if that’s what you meant. But I’m not aware of any major chassis capability changes. Regardless, OP shouldn’t even consider unless 4.10 gears. IIRC, 2014 was the year GM 2500 6.0 went to 4.10 gearing as standard, since earlier standard was 3.73. Jerry

RE: Black tank flush overfill

I would not say OP was lucky yet? Other than out the toilet, or out the roof vent, there is no place else to go. Something is damaged, likely the black tank. You will need to gain access to see where the problem is, by cutting a window, or removing a portion of the enclosed covering. If you have fiber insulation, that is wet, that will need to be removed/replaced. Jerry

RE: What Upgrades needed for a 3/4 ton pickup

Post all specs of the late model 2500, transmission, rear end gearing, tires/wheels, for proper answers. Forget about older, high mileage model. Jerry

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

I have a new Ford F-350. Great...leave it plugged in if you want. Not to mention, you have the best IBC out there, best mirrors, and best looking truck too!:C Only question now do you have the B&W for Ford OEM puck system? Jerry

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

^ I don't have a real answer to your question Spoon, but smaller tires/wheels help keep a vehicle that is mostly used for hauling a load on rear axle, lower to the ground. Jerry

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

^ Yes, Ford has built in protection. Just another reason to get the blue oval for towing RVs. :) Does the OP have a Ford?? Hard to say on the Rams, if you call to ask, you will need to speak Spanish. Jerry

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Marty said: "Actually I like the "what if it were a front tire?" Was a good question...Grit will be along to apologize pretty soon, nothing wrong with that! I would, if I ever offended someone unnecessarily. :) Jerry

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

^ Yup, Chris should know Ford has the higher than 7K rating, since he has left the Mafia brand, and joined the blue oval club! Even in 2013, you could get a F350 SRW with RAWR 7,280! Jerry
